A jQuery tabs module for todays web!


Tabulous.js can be used with any contents you choose in the tabs and it couldn't be more simpler to use.

..:: Getting Started

Include the relevant files

Firstly include jQuery and the tabulous.css and tabulous.js files. Place these before <head> section

<script type="text/javascript" src="tabulous.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js.js"></script>
Create the tabs
  <div id="tabs">
            <li><a href="#tabs-1" title="">Tab 1</a></li>
            <li><a href="#tabs-2" title="">Tab 2</a></li>
            <li><a href="#tabs-3" title="">Tab 3</a></li>
        <div id="tabs_container">
            <div id="tabs-1">
                <!--tab content-->
            <div id="tabs-2">
                   <!--tab content-->
            <div id="tabs-3">
                    <!--tab content-->
        </div><!--End tabs container--> 
  </div><!--End tabs-->
Initiate the plugin

Once you have created your tabs you will need to initiate the plugin.

At its most basic level you can initiate the plugin like:

    $(document).ready(function ($) {



If you want to initiate the plugin with options then you can do so like:

      effect: 'scale'

..:: Options

Variable Default Value Description Valid Options
effect scale The effect to use for the transition scale / slideLeft / scaleUp / flip

  • I am planning to use this in a project. It will be a single page application. Is there a possibility to add an x mark at the end of the each tab by clicking on it the user should be able to close(remove) a tab & its contents.

    Can I ask you to comment on my problem? When I have links in a tab, they just don’t function. Thank you in advance!

    Hi , it does not work if I stick a loop(wp_query) within the tabs . Help me please 🙁 Thank you!

    • I think that should change id () in every loop. I didn’t try but I think you should create variable. Use this variable in id and change the number in in every loop.

    opacity: (0/1); for showXXX and hideXXX make some elements intrusive. Even using a z-index. that’s not interesting to use it. It gives more problems that it can solves.

    i included a google map inside one of the tabs but it is not working,
